A thought for June

Lately I seem to have met more and more individuals whose writing is exceptional but who have not yet found a traditional path to publication or to an audience.  Their writing, in many ways, is better than what’s currently in the bookstores.  I wonder how many, if any, of them will “make it.”  What does it mean to “make it” as a writer, anyway?  And who counts as an author?  Wishing to be an author doesn’t make it so.  But being excluded by gatekeepers should not necessarily be the final say, either.
